Selena Gomez leads a charmed life. She may be the only girl ever romantically linked to King Justin Bieber who hasn’t subsequently received a barrage of terrifying hate-tweets from his extremely dedicated fans.
“I didn’t!” she tells Miami Y100 in a Jingle Ball interview. “Because I’ve been friends with him for a while, now. We’ve always been friends and we’ve always just kind of supported and loved each other. If anything, the fans have been really sweet, and I really appreciate that.”
It helps that she’s not Kim Kardashian, we’re guessing.
Gomez laughs off rumors that Bieb’s new song, “Latin Girl,” is about her. “I don’t think that’s about me,” she says. If she had to write a song about him, she’d call it “Brown Eyes.”
“They’re very interesting,” he says. “They’re very interesting. They’re like brown-hazely. They’re really pretty.” Swoon.
The DJ asked Gomez how she avoids the Lindsay Lohan rehab route of Young Hollywood. Gomez, whose former BFF Demi Lovato is in treatment for physical and emotional issues, says that we shouldn’t be so quick to judge those on a downward spiral. “It’s really hard,” she says. “That’s what really bothers me. I feel like sometimes people don’t quite understand how difficult this industry can be with everyone watching you and every move you make. Things can be so misinterpreted at times.”
Gomez credits her mom for keeping her off the DUI list. “My mom has never left my side,” she says. “I mean, I’m 18 years old, but she’s completely there to take my phone away or tell me I can’t do something or say no.”
